Lorie the Laminator

LaminatingpouchesYou’ve heard of the Terminator… now meet "The Laminator." I really like laminating important pieces of paper! Here are some ways that I use laminating pouches around my home and office:

  • Checklists for packing, speaking engagements, and other recurring needs
  • Workout training program- taped to my treadmill
  • Schedules for newsletter releases and other recurring business events
  • Procedures/instructions posted up on a wall or cabinet
  • Rate charts, price lists, tax tables
  • Cheat sheets
  • One-page downtown map in my car
  • I could go on and on…

I don’t have a laminating machine–I use laminating pouches that you "peel & seal." I like the "Scotch Self-Sealing Laminating Pouches" product #LS854-25G. I have found them at the best price at Sam’s Club (this photo is from their website), but I know you can get them at lots of office supply stores too. I use an architect’s ruler to smooth the pages out while I peel off the backing (3-sided ruler that is easier to hold onto), but you can use any straight edge that works for you.

What could you laminate today? Get creative! It’s fun AND efficient.



This blog seems to be mostly ads. It’s hard to find the content. Blogs are supposed to be a conversation. Are you having one?

Hi Rita, I am happy to have a conversation with you about this.
I want to make it clear that I make NO money from recommending the laminating product in this post, or any of the products I mention. If I ever do have the opportunity to make money from recommending something, I will explicitly say so, but so far that is not the case. As an expert, people simply ask me all the time for very specific recommendations, so I have learned to go ahead and say that up front when giving people a tip or idea.
Also, I am one of the few bloggers left who DOESN’T have ads on my site, such as Google Text Ads on the side, etc. The only promotional information here is for my own stuff– our company’s products and our membership website. I think if you read through my posts you’ll find LOTS of content here… I am very careful to try to add value to people’s lives in every post.
Thanks for the comment.
– Lorie
